Playing career[edit]

Legein has spent most of his career in the OHL, playing only one year in another league, the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League (OPJHL) before being drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets. Legein participated in the 2007 CHL Top Prospects Game and the OHL Eastern Conference All-Star Team in 2007, where he won the fastest skater competition, completing a single lap in 14.109 seconds. He also recorded 3 points in the game (2 goals, 1 assist).[2] Prior to the 2008-09 season, Legein made headlines following his announcement to retire from the game though no official reason was announced, later that season, he announced that he would like to return to the game and joined the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL for the remainder of the season. On October 20, 2009, Legein was traded by the Columbus Blue Jackets to the Philadelphia Flyers for fellow minor leaguer, Mike Ratchuk. Stefan Legein was traded on October 12, 2011 by the Philadelphia Flyers, along with a 2012 6th round draft pick, to the Los Angeles Kings for future considerations.[3]

On October 5, 2013, the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League signed Legein to a professional tryout contract.
